Our mission carries forward the desires of two young brothers, Jeffrey Horne, himself a victim of Acute Mylogenous Leukemia, and his younger brother, bone marrow/stem cell transplant donor, Brian Horne. Jeffrey succumbed to leukemia at the age of 20 years. Less than five months after losing his brother, Brian died of sudden cardiac arrest & acute respiratory failure (a broken heart) at the age of 19. Both young men were vocal in expressing the need for research for a cure and participated in a variety of charitable activities on behalf of this cause.
